Researcher Portfolio

Tan Puay Siew (Dr)
Group Manager
Planning and Operations Management

Dr Tan Puay Siew has been working in the cross-field disciplines of Computer Science and Operations Research, in particular enabling virtual enterprise collaboration. She has been the technical lead of the Java Smart Services Lab (JSSL), a project co-funded by IDA and Sun Microsystems, and supported by many other leading software providers to develop leading edge web services technology. Her research includes services computing augmented by context-aware and cognitive abilities for better decision making in support of dynamically formed business processes in a complex environment for the virtual enterprise.

Currently, her main research interests is in using Complex Systems approaches to better understand the emergent behaviours in Supply Chain networks. The research here includes understanding and quantifying the propagation of disruptions, thereby the consequent impacts of the disruptions to companies. Mitigation techniques to minimise the variability caused by such disruptions are of focus too.
